Default What is this week's 60% Off Bonus Deal about?

I'm obviously being a bit stupid, but I can't see what this deal is? I mean, I can't see any change at the store.
Any clarification appreciated!

Hello,

You are not stupid.

It is not a regular discount on the sale price, it has to do with the bonus points you earn when you buy a module full price.

But I must admit I do not understand very well either in this case.

Thanks for that. Still don't understand it though, the bonus on the site is still 20% as usual.

I think it means that if you have enough bonus points to spend, you can get up to 60% off on a module. I've never use that system but I believe you only see the discount in the cart after having picked up a module and chosen to spend bonus points. Of course you need to be logged in.

That is correct. Considering that ED employs people who are native English speakers, one would think that information intended for distribution in English would be worded better.

Normally, there's a limit (30-ish percent? Don't remember) on discount one can get while using his bonus points. The way I understand it, they bumped it up to 60 for this promo.

Basically, Call it "ED Bucks", if you buy a module at Full Price you get a % of that Purchase as ED Bucks on your Login.


You can Use those ED Bucks to discount up to 60% off Modules Right Now, the Normal Limit is 30%.

You're gonna wait forever then since ED no longer give 60 % discount like in the past. The biggest is 50% AFAIK. And they just gave it few weeks ago as summer sale. So you maybe have to wait till next summer
